Rick Perry arrives at courthouse to get booked and get mugshot (left). Speaks before goes in. Many fans cheer. "I'm here today because I believe in the rule of law." Really? Did he have a choice? "I'm going to enter this courthouse with my head held high, knowing actions I took were lawful and right." And he'd do that veto again. "It's about the constitution....This indictment is nothing short of a constitutional attack on the office of governor...I will not allow this attack to stand. I'm going to fight this injustice with every fiber of my being--and we will prevail."
